Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport - Louise Alling­ham

Reg­is­tra­tions are now open for the Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club’s Dr Bayn­ton 6 Hour Rem­edy race.

The six-hour race will start at 3pm at the Kar­ratha BMX track on June 18 and is open to rid­ers over the age of 12.

The ob­ject of the race is to ride as many laps of the course in the al­lo­cated six-hour time slot as pos­si­ble.

Rid­ers can en­ter into one of four cat­e­gories to par­tic­i­pate in­di­vid­u­ally, in a duo or as a team.

Teams are en­cour­aged to have a team name and come up with a theme or cos­tume. There will be a prize for the best-dressed team.

The event will con­clude with pre­sen­ta­tions and a post-race wind down around a bon­fire with food and drinks avail­able.

A Gi­ant moun­tain bike has been do­nated to the club which they will raf­fle off at the wind down.

Raf­fle tick­ets are avail­able upon online regis­tra­tion or through the Bur­rup MTB club. Help sell tick­ets by col­lect­ing a raf­fle book at the Bur­rup MTB club’s next race.

Reg­is­tra­tions close on June 12 and costs $30 with an ad­di­tional $25 for a day li­cence for non-MTBA mem­bers. To reg­is­ter, head to bur­rupmtb.com.
